Book Review: “Shredding the Evidence,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Phew, what a week. What a month. I decided to read a light cozy by one of my preferred cozy authors, Daryl Wood Gerber, to just read something, anything. Because of this, my disappointment in Shredding the Evidence may be exacerbated, but I do expect better from book 9 of a series I am generally … Continue reading Book Review: “Shredding the Evidence,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

Hello, all! I am so ridiculously happy to be reviewing Dead-End Detective for multiple reasons: I received the ARC from Netgalley and Hallmark Publishing, I am obsessed with Hallmark Mystery Movies, and my new job is killing me so much that this is the only book I have finished in ages. It helped that this … Continue reading Book Review: “Dead-End Detective,” by Amanda Flower

Belated October Wrap-Up

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers," says L.M. Montgomery in Anne of Green Gables. It is a uniquely true statement. October is a month of beautiful leaves, abundant apple trees, and a feeling of delicious spooky anticipation for Halloween to come. This October was particularly poignant for me - … Continue reading Belated October Wrap-Up

ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle

Hi all, and sorry I have been absent! My new job is kicking my butt (in a good way, but still a lot of work), and my reading has fallen to the wayside. It is only week one, so hopefully I will get over the growing pains soon. I could not neglect my ARCs, however, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle

ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

I don't know about anyone else, but I am having some major Sunday scaries right now. Tomorrow, I start a new job. It is the first "first day" I have had in years, and it is a remarkably different experience because of COVID. To combat the nervous energy by lining up all of my cozy … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Phew, what a week. It took me forever to finish Hallowe'een Party, partly because it was a bit disappointing and partly because, I am happy to announce, I am starting a new job next week. So last week was a veritable shitshow of tying up loose ends and saying goodbye to beloved coworkers from afar, … Continue reading Book Review: “Hallowe’en Party,” by Agatha Christie

Down the TBR Hole #12

Since I haven't made good progress on my reading this week, I think it is time for a good TBR cleanup. I managed to remove 6 out of 10 books during my last TBR cleanup, which was a feat and a half. This session, I am feeling slightly less ambitious. A while ago, I discovered this … Continue reading Down the TBR Hole #12

Out now: “Murder at an Irish Christmas” by Carlene O’Connor

Apologies for the interruption of regularly scheduled programming, but I have to tell you that Murder at an Irish Christmas, the newest Irish Village Mystery, is out now! I had such a pleasure reviewing this ARC, because Carlene O'Connor does such an awesome job of showing Ireland's little towns and beautiful seaside ruggedness. I also … Continue reading Out now: “Murder at an Irish Christmas” by Carlene O’Connor

Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

It has been way too long since I have written a real review. After promising myself not to get into a slump, I lingered while reading Murder on Cold Street and took a full week to finish it. I am partly to blame - switching jobs, planning a wedding, and other life things have gotten … Continue reading Book Review: “Murder on Cold Street,” by Sherry Thomas

WWW Wednesday – October 21, 2020

Happy Wednesday, all! I have to admit, it is going to be a quiet WWW this week. While I got so much reading done for last week, this week, I haven't finished anything. This isn't for lack of desire to read - no slumps here. I have just been so preoccupied with work stuff that … Continue reading WWW Wednesday – October 21, 2020
